“All of us at UMG are shocked and saddened at the loss of Charlie Watts. Charlie was a naturally instinctive drummer for all generations and he will be greatly missed. His incomparable contributions to the genesis of popular music culture will continue to inspire and influence musicians and fans for years to come. My deepest condolences go to his family, friends and to Mick, Keith, Ronnie and Joyce at this time.”
